I know you're antiseptic
Your deodorant smells nice
I'd like to know you
But you're deep frozen like ice
He's a germ free adolescent
Cleanliness is her obsession
Cleans her teeth ten times a day
Scrub away, scrub away
Scrub away the SR way
You may get to touch her
If your gloves are sterilised
Rinse your mouth with Listerine
Blow disinfectant in her eyes
Her phobia is infection
She needs one to survive
It's her built-in protection
Without fear she'd give up and die
